I'm on the road this week, so I've been playing Gateway to the Savage Frontier on my work laptop. It's got some gameplay improvements compared to Pool of Radiance, but it doesn't feel as real a…

The GOG DOSBox install works great out of the box. I've had to do absolutely no fiddling with it whatsoever. I did set the in-game speed down a notch to make it easier to see combat messages.

Lionheart's interesting to play as an example of what might have been. It starts off strong, but it quickly becomes apparent that it wasn't finished. Properly completed, it could have been a…

I've given up on Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. It's an interesting setting, some of the powers seem cool, and the characters interact with the world a bit more, but the level and encounter design is…

I loved PoR, obviously, but was lukewarm on the rest of that series. It's the old high-level content problem. I really liked the Savage Frontier games, though, and I imagine they're probably going…

I have to admit, I did get a thrill looking through the PoR manual. :)

I picked up the Gold Box set because I love those games and know I'll get a lot of play out of them once I get into them. …

I fired up Donkey Kong the other day when I had 10 minutes to kill. Looking at the first screen I remember thinking "Oh, this'll be easy. Why do I remember this being a challenge?" Uh, no. …

I don't think it's too bad. The EotB series isn't that old, especially compared to the rest of their catalogue, and you get three games. The Gold Box collection's got a hell of a lot in it, so no…

The Gold Box games have pretty good stories overall. Obviously they're not voice-acted or full of cutscenes, requiring some reading (in an external book, no less!), which seems to mean "no story" to…

I had that one, too. Was that the box that had all the cd's just slipped into slits in the cardboard at an angle, or am I mixing it up with another one?

Hillsfar's in the second collection with the rest of the Pools series. Or at least it's listed as bring a part of it. How much of the original NWN would work now, since it was an online game?

Aw, yeah! I've been waiting for these. I was never that crazy about the Eye of the Beholder series, but the second collection looks really good. That's a hell of a lot of great games for £10.
